The bible didn't contain much about the Van DeKarr family. The following is what it

Rebecca PHILIPS VANDEKARR born 2-20-1796 Died 12-27-1862.
Charles BUSH and Dorothy Jane SNODGRASS weren't married very long. They got married
in 1869 and got divorced when my grandfather, Frank C. BUSH was about 5 years old, which
would of made it 1880. At the 1880 census my grandfather lived with his grandparents,
John J. BUSH and Christina BUSH. I don't think Dorothy was much of a record keeper.
She did keep records of her sibling's births but only 2 of the deaths. At some point
the bible was given to Alta LEWIS BUSH wife of Bert Henderson BUSH and she updated it
Sorry but that is all it has. I hope the dates help but there were no places shown for
anything other that the marriage of Charles A. BUSH and Dorothy Jane SNODGRASS in Golden,
Colorado on 20th June 1869.
